Türk kahvesi (Turkish coffee)

To correctly make Turkish coffee, you will need a special small pot called a cezve. Cezves come in various sizes – from a single serving to 5 servings. These can be found at some cooking stores in larger cities and at Middle Eastern markets. They can also be purchased from online Turkish groceries.

Coffee for two:
2 teaspoons Turkish grind coffee (pulverized)
2 espresso-cup sized cups of cold water
2 teaspoons sugar

Put cold water into cezve. Mix in coffee and sugar. Bring to a rising boil over medium heat, do not stir while it is brewing! When it is about to boil, pour some foam into each cup. Put the cezve back on the burner and bring to a boil. Pour remaining coffee equally into the two cups.
